found

it took me so long
to find you
because you were there
long before I stopped looking
for the other half of my hope.

in that silence
of hopelessness
I heard the world laughing,
for we were one
and no one could imagine
a world where we were apart.

you are clever, and ambitious,
and careful and kind and creative,
and in the hive of our mind
you dare to disagree
and make me better for it.

do not go far from me;
I would not live in a world
as silent as before the day
that I met you.
